    Hasbro will use any excuse to milk a mold and get figures to our wallets. Titans Return had leftovers of Combiner Wars, Power Of The Primes had leftovers of Titans Return and they made a special run of figures for Amazon to carry exclusively to sell them. They'll do the same with Siege. And whatever comes after Siege will do the same. It's become tradition since CW.

    Uh, Siege has a gimmick. It's the whole "weaponizer" thing so, yeah. You're remembering things wrong.

    I’d rather have more characters retooled or repainted from others (as long as it works) than to just have less characters.

    Well given that Greenlight and Lancer haven't had toys until now, there's no precedent for gimmicks for them to have.

    i mean i guess i didnt say character, but can they even combine? i feel its the same as someone wanting the seekers to combine when they weren't known for combining, i mean would be cool but at the same time why? but im done with this debate glad for those who want here in the line.

    The information you're looking for is the first two sentences of this thread.

    They were background extras with no lines who didn't even get names for over a decade, they could have been headmaster targetmasters for all we know of their story in the G1 cartoon :'D

    As for them combining well, no but then Elita wasn't a Jet in the Cartoon... Not that we ever saw her entire alt mode on the episode she appeared on. That said being on an established team with one another is a better reason for getting made a Combiner than random bots. Especially as CW and PotP seems to operate on IDW combiner rules, that is where any given group of bots can be made a Combiner with the Enigma of Combination, with those who have operated as a team for an extended period making the most stable Gestalt personality. This is the same logic for Optimus Maximus DEFENDER OF ALL SENTIENT BEINGS being made up of five of the original G1 Ark crew.
    So no, an Elita Combiner has not to my knowledge appeared in fiction but it is entirely reasonable and plausible within their story framework.


    I would also not be surprised if/when Elita appears in the new IDW comic that she'll be a Jet and will end up forming a Combiner with her team.

    Hmm assuming Greenlight is anything to go by I'd assume of she has a Battlemaster partner it'll be a repaint of an existing one... possibly with a My Little Pony sounding name :D

    I hope soon I really would like to see how Lancer turns out color wise, what with her being so similar to Impactor.

    Keep it civil. Stop the insults. Next name calling or replying to someone results in a warning, then a thread ban.

    Yeah, I'd guess Lancer will come with Pteraxadon or Smashdown with a MLP name (I'd lean Pteraxadon as a guess). Hopefully she's a little more of a retool than Greenlight is to give us those shoulders from the episode, but that might be expecting too much.

    Something I find odd with Greenlight, considering the Siege gimmick, is that her version of the mold REMOVED the 5MM holes on her wrists/lower arms when compared to Moonracer/Novastar, making her (slightly) less compatible with Siege's gimmick.

    Probably cause it makes the overall figure cheaper and simplier. Since they were already remolding parts on her, why not?

    Huh. Good point. But yeah it’s probably to make the figure cheaper. And considering she also has a battle master and other bits I kinda get it.

    I know Lancer fits with the team, but what if they plug in Richoet as the fourth limb?
